The Glade is a Sexual Assault Referral Centre which provides support for women and men who have been raped or sexually assaulted across the West Mercia area which includes Worcestershire, Herefordshire, Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin.
Our organisation offers a range of support to survivors of sexual assault regardless of whether they have reported to the police including:
· A forensic medical examination to obtain any evidence from the assault. This will be done by a specially trained forensic medical examiner.
· Crisis Worker Support. All clients who attend The Glade for an examination will be supported by a trained female crisis worker from the moment they arrive. The Crisis Worker will act as an advocate for the client while they access The Glade’s services.
· Self-referral support and options. If a client does not feel ready to report to the police a self-referral examination can be arranged. Any information and samples collected in this examination will be confidentially stored for up to seven years to give the client time to consider their options.
· Onward referrals for support including: a referral to an Independent Sexual Violence Advisor, counselling, and a sexual health follow-up
